I met Nelson Vercher of the Rita Hazan Salon backstage at Costello Tagliapitra for their Spring ’13 Collection show on September 6th. He was energetic and lively yet comfortable with the backstage chaos. He has been doing this for 5 season and told me that the look for this show was based on long 18th Century hair, only longer and sexier. He used a curling iron to give the hair soft waves and movement. The hair style he created for this show depicts an edgy, cool and modern girl.
Here is the MAC look for the Costello Tagliapietra Spring 2013 runway. It was a soft and natural look with extra blush around the eyes and high and front and center on the cheekbones.
FACE & BODY FOUNDATION — applied with fingers for an innocent look to skin. A lighter shade was blended through the center of the face towards the matching
shade of foundation through the hairline, under cheekbones, and jawline to create dimension. LUNA AND PEARL CREAM COLOUR BASE — blended together and lightly pressed into skin
with fingers over high planes: outer cheekbone, bridge of nose, inner corner of eye, and over the eyelid.
RIGHT ON ORANGE AND ELECTRIC SPRING FROM SPRING ’13 FORECAST/LIPS (AVAILABLE SPRING/SUMMER 2013) — blended together and applied with
224 Tapered Blending Brush over the upper and lower eyelid, through the crease, and upper cheekbone.
FASCINATING EYE KOHL — applied through the waterline of lower lashes to brighten and open eyes. CLEAR BROW SET — used through the brows and lashes to groom and define.
LADY AT PLAY MINERALIZE RICH LIPSTICK (AVAILABLE SPRING/SUMMER 2013) —
applied with the 316 Lip Brush/Covered to create a stain of colour through the center of lips.
